_Finding God in Crisis survey

8 Minutes and 46 Seconds:
Together We Can Redeem the Narrative

How to close the great and growing racial divide in our country? One way is to see and acknowledge the struggles that African Americans face. Through this, we build bridges and are able to change the narrative of hundreds of years of systemic racism.

If we are new creations in Christ, if the old creation has gone and the new has truly come, then we are called to see all people with the eyes of Jesus and to love all people as ourselves.

Explore racial reconciliation and acceptance through a series presented by POJ's Black Caucus. Join on Zoom for these interactive and inspirational dialogues.
